  • Despite the fact that it didn't plan this walk it was good to go there. Promenade well groomed, clean, available small gastonomia and weather was good just so I could admire and financial centre in the distance and traffic on the giant River (seagoing vessels) and the view of the river.

  • In the morning there are older but also guys who fly kites. Then come those jogging. And the ladies who engage in slow dances. And those doing gymnastics. I also saw a film set and a fashion. The Riverwalk is an open air theatre. And there's also the twin of the Bull of Wall Street.

  • He ride in boat for appreciate of night the skyline and them buildings ancient of Shanghai, for my liked is a luxury sobrado, since walking by the malecon of the city can get views impeccable of the city without the need of make an expenditure additional in your pocket. The ride I would appreciate it as an extra, perhaps ideal to go as a couple and enjoy romance which might give the place and the occasion, however, to go with family, I recommend more walking the Boardwalk, take photos from there and save yourself about how many Yuan or spend them on another activity.
